ed show." president obama's push for a comprehensive immigration reform might be just the shot in the arm organized labor needs. the bureau of labor statistics reports union membership among whites fell by 547,000 last year, but union memberships among latinos jumped by 156,000 in 2012. 11 million workers coming out of the shadows could change the face of labor and ignite a powerful political force, which helped put president obama in the white house twice. let's turn to leo gerard, president of the united steelworkers international organization. mr. gerard good to have you with us tonight. >> good to be here. >> is this an issue that is going to help the labor force in this country? if you have 11 million workers come out of the shadows -- and let's face it, well over in the 90% have got to be, they're not all felons is the point i'm making. how is this going to help the labor movement in this country? >> look, these are primarily good people that came to america in search of the american dream, in search of a better standard of living. if you go back to the days of when we we
a favorable view of president obama's gun reform proposal. and while the gun lobby has come out against the president's entire plan, the numbers are pretty stark. 53% are favorable, 41% unfavorable. more interesting as you go into the poll, the favorables are much more intense than the unfavorables. which means that we've heard, for some time, richard wolffe, that, you know, the gun owners are so intense, and they're the ones that are going to always make phone calls and the ones that are going to always be engaged. and in this poll, and i'm sure we're going to see it in other polls, a majority of americans are more intense about passing some sane gun regulation than are those small groups of people that are going to fight the political death over assault weapons and being able to have high-capacity magazines. >> and a couple of things. first of all, if you break down the individual proposal, the support is even higher, right? universal background checks, you get way higher than 50%. and those numbers really reflect the president's own favorability right now. the other part of it is tha
between she and president obama. how important would it be to get immigration reform done and then set the table for her to take on another big issue in this country? which of course could be health care, which of course could be women's rights. >> absolutely. and the health care plan we have right now is a lot closer to the one she proposed during the campaign because barack obama was against the individual mandate and she was for it. but yeah, on immigration, if immigration reform were to get done, i think republicans are even starting to realize this, it would redound mostly to the benefit of democrats. latinos are trending toward the democratic party on most issues. i think it would help republicans only marginally and democrats a lot more. it would get that issue off the table. if she were to run, which a lot of people think she will, i think she will, she is going to have a lot of successes in the previous administration to kind of push off and run. >> joy reid, great to have you on "the ed show." thank you. >> good to be here. >> a lot more coming up in the next half hour of the
, 380 times they did it to obstruct president obama's agenda, and senate democrats i think are sick of this. senator tom harkin of iowa said on my radio show today without meaningful filibuster reform, it could be a rough second term for president obama. >> i said to obama one time we were in iowa, the night before the election, he was in iowa, the night before the election, i said to him, i said, look, i want some of your time after the election. he said sure, what about? filibuster. i said you get reelected, if you get reelected and we don't change the filibuster rules in the senate, you might as well take a four-year vacation, because you won't get anything done. >> senator harkin also told me about the so-called 41 rule that would require 41 republicans to vote in order to maintain a filibuster instead of requiring the majority party to find 60 votes to break one. folks, 60 votes, it isn't going to happen in the senate. not in this political climate. senator reid had included the 41 rule in his proposal, but politico reported late tonight he dropped the rule after talks with mcc
? the republican party was losing the support of hispanic citizens in his right. president obama cut over 70% of the latino vote. spoke about the immigration reform and expects to do so tomorrow during a speech in las vegas bin of bipartisan push for immigration reform. thank you for joining us congressman been my pleasure to be with you. . >> characterize this bipartisan cooperation republicans are nervous that they've already alienated that growing in powerful latino vote is that true? i think a great degree has to do with that election and the consequences of it. what i should think is we may want to also say that that election could reinforce our democratic fundamental faith. democratic values. their groups of people organized to make a message for action to their votes. that is clearly why groups of immigrants across this nation are getting a response. i'm glad to see that this demand by american citizens is being addressed. we have been here before. 2005. john mccain and several other congressmen introduced bipartisan support is a proposal and i am delighted to see john f. mccain to th
by their parents. i commend him for making immigration reform a top priority. president obama will place to the nation his own ideas during a visit to las vegas tomorrow. with bipartisan support billing in both houses of congress and a president who is eager to solve this issue, there is no reason we should not pass comprehensive immigration reform immediately. it will be good for our economy and good for families. successful immigration reform cannot be piecemeal and it must include a path to citizenship for 11 million undocumented individuals in our country. legislation must craft a comprehensive solution that among other things continues to secure our borders, punishes unscrupulous employers who deploy immigrants. they have to learn english, work, pay taxes, stay out of trouble and then get to the back of the line; but they do obtain legal status, which is so important. the framework proposed by the bipartisan group of eight senators meets this criteria and i hope we'll soon have a bill to send through the committee process and bring to the floor for a vote. i've long said when my rep

obama is wasting no time to push his message when it comes to reform. are you surprised how fast these conversations are happening? >>. no because republicans have a vested interest. in their examination trying to reach out to latino voters, this has been a good way do that. the republican party ride to take on before under president bush and they were unsuccessful. they're really speaking constructively, democrats and republicans together. it doesn't mean that the legislation is going to happen because there's still a question of what you do with illegal immigrants who are here now. dhou they go to the back of line as it were. do they have to leave the country? there are difficult elements to it. i think it's something that is going to be an area of bipartisan. >> wanted to ask you about democratic and republican shifting. senator tom harkin announcing he will not seek reelection is a bit of a surprise, the head of an influential committee. then you have paul ryan, who is going to be your exclusive guest. if there was one lesson approximate this election, wasn't it that republic
